In each of my visual arts classes I have my students make their own sketchbook.
They learn a new book binding technique, such as folder style, coptic, or accordion, in each class. This introduces them to a range of sketchbook styles and encourages them to take ownership of their sketchbooks by decorating and personalizing them.
Coptic sketchbooks are the focus for this lesson.
Students learn the history of coptic sketchbooks through a PowerPoint and receive step by step instructions through the PowerPoint, a handout, and a video.
All in all this project pack includes:
➢Coptic sketchbook PowerPoint
➢Lesson plan, including big idea, goals, objectives, supply list, and step by step instructions.
➢Coptic sketchbook how to handout
➢Coptic sketchbook book binding how to video
